Netflix has changed the world of movie distribution. Some international producers now prefer streaming their movies on Netflix rather than engaging film distribution companies. This is definitely a goldmine for Netflix as it recently made its services available globally. Despite the obvious advantages of Netflix, it has some downsides that may discourage you from subscribing. Jovago.com, Africa's No.1 hotel booking portal provides 5 reasons to consider before subscribing to Netflix.
Limited movies tailored to your location
Netflix may not be the best place to visit if you are interested in Nollywood movies. Only a handful of Nigerian movies are available. The majority of the movies you find on Netflix are from Hollywood. You may be lucky if you even find an indigenous language movie streaming on this platform.
Except you subscribe to Netflix original, you will not have access to current movies like Bat and superman. This is because the film bank of Netflix is not up-to-date. This is deliberate as producers want to accrue their investment before granting permission for their films to be streamed on Netflix.
Needs fast internet
Very few people get good internet services from their service providers. More often than not, the network services are not top notch. As a result, you may not enjoy the movie as it will keep buffering due to questionable internet connection.
You don’t own the content
Subscribers do not have the choice of watching Netflix movies they find enthralling repeatedly. So, after watching a movie, you are expected to simply move on to the next. However as a remedy, you can approach your film store to buy that movie if you are so keen on watching it again.
Huge Data consumption
The data consumption level for viewing Netflix is very high. The movies are streamed in either HD or full HD thus the high data usage. To be on the safe side, you should subscribe to the Netflix packages offered by telecom companies. Outside these promotions, you will keep spending heavily on subscription.
